Chicken Pot Pie

Can you say Yummy?

I made roast chicken yesterday for dinner, and today used the left overs to make a pot pie. It is such a good comfort food. Tomorrow I will make soup with the left over carcass and meat.

Chicken Pot Pie

2 cups diced cooked chicken
1 can, drained, mixed veggies
two large peeled, diced potatoes
1/2 large onion
1-2 cans of cream of chicken soup
Salt, Pepper, Garlic salt to taste

So if you are crunched for time like me, go ahead and use a store bought pie crust. It just makes it easier for me. Put the pie crust in your pie plate. Mix all the ingredients above in a medium size bowl, and then pour into the crust/pie plate. Top with the other pie crust and cut a slit or two on top. It should cook at about 350 for an hour, mine took that long. I think next time I'll do 400 instead.

Let cool for a few minutes and enjoy!

I really am in a rut with the cooking, but this is so delicious! Pot pie is not a hard meal to make, just mix up some chicken with cream soup and veggies and a few spices.

Always good to extend one meal for several days. This is a good way to do that. Thanks for joining TMTT.

I love chicken pot pie. I made it from scratch earlier this week in my slow cooker. Came out amazing!

For the crockpot version.... you put the onion, potatoes, chicken, soup, spices any other liquid in the slow cooker. Cook it for about 6 hours on low. Once the potatoes are tender, add in the desired vegetables and cook another 20-30 minutes. Transfer to a pie plate and use pre-made pie crust, or top with the dough from those biscuits or crescent rolls that come in a can. Bake it in the oven until brown :-)
